The Child Initiation Flight is designed for children from 3 to 14 years old. We only carry them out in suitable aerological conditions. After a smooth takeoff, the magic of the flight operates. Children have no difficulty with paragliding, it’s like being a bird of course! For this particular flight, the pilot stays near the village, magic of Saint Vincent-Les-Forts, we can come and fly over mum and dad who stayed at take-off! memories guaranteed! Two landings are possible: right next to the take-off site when the conditions are sufficiently generous (in 95% of cases), or on the shores of the lake, where a vehicle comes to pick us up.
The Panoramic Children’s Flight is aimed at all curious people wishing to discover paragliding in its most beautiful dimension: thermal flight. During this first flight, the pilot will evolve above the village of Saint Vincent les Forts, analyzing each movement of air in order to exploit the different types of lift. The latter, when Mother Nature is generous, allow us to gain altitude and increase our scope of evolution. As you move above the Serre-Ponçon lake, with its turquoise and green reflections, you are offered an exceptional view of the Hautes Alpes and Haute Provence. Dominated by the majestic mountains of Dormillouse and Grand Morgon, it is a landscape of rare beauty that awaits you.
